"the onion" newspaper has this headline this week -- "congress continues debate over whether or not nation should be economically ruined." if the question is whether washington is broken, make the case that the answer is yes. >> i think there's no question it's broken. you know, our country was created on the principle of compromise. think about it. the states versus the federal government, senate versus house, north versus south. and i remember once, one of the old framers was asked, what is the three principles of this new government you've created? well, the first is compromise, the second is compromise, the third is compromise. something's happened where compromise has become a terrible word in washington. it's partly because the parties have become more ideologically separated. henry clay was the great comp

decade. a big piece is what senator reid calls the winding down of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. that will save $1 trillion. republicans have called that a gimmick, savings from wars that are winding down, even though by the way, the same savings were counted in some republican budgets. reid's plan would not reform or cut medicare, medicaid, social security. there would be no changes to taxes. it would raise the debt ceiling by $2.4 trillion. that would be enough to fund the government through next year's election. now the boehner plan is more short term. it would raise the debt ceiling in two different steps. the first step would happen immediately. raising that ceiling by about a trillion dollars, would be accompanied by spending cuts of $1.2 trillion over ten years. that would get us to next year. right? when we would need a second vote to raise the debt ceiling again by another $1.6 trillion. now that second increase would be contingent on more cuts, another 1.8 there the in spending cuts that would have to be agreed to by a bipartisan committee. the second vote you guys, is
